With the computerization of the process for obtaining hunting and fishing licenses and the minimal profit margin made on these sales, many places in the county where one once could obtain these legal documents are no longer making them available.
One such instance is Sportsman’s Corner on Martintown Rd., a place many hunters and fishermen within the county have used for years as their outlet of choice for purchasing game licenses. The gas station has chosen to no longer offer the licenses for sale at their establishment.
However, there are still a few local spots where hunters and fishermen can purchase hunting and fishing licenses. The Turkey Shoppe on Main located on Main Street in Edgefield and the Northside BP on Hwy 25 still have the licenses for sale.
Purchases can also be made in WalMart sporting goods departments. The SC Department of Natural Resources’ also has purchase options via their website at dnr.sc.gov/purchase.html. There, one can either print out a mail-in order form or purchase the licenses directly from the site. Purchases may also be made through SCDNR by calling 1-866-714-3611 during normal business hours.
